    Title: Siblings
    Author: leroy gibin
    Rating: M+
    Genre: Supernatural/Adventure
    Pairing: multiple - none of which are able to sublate the plot (a rare and awesome sight in this particular fandom)
    Status: WIP
    Summary: A horrifying ordeal leads Dawn to search for her path, while Buffy and the slayers try to stave off another apocalypse.
    Linkage: Siblings

    The author's summary, and the first page might put some people off. Arrogant self-aggrandizement commonly manifests in way the author has written these parts. However, I urge you to keep with it. The story is good, and quickly engages.


    It's pretty witty, and quickly turns dark, as Dawn does not deal well with her kidnapping and what she did there. There is a super-human Russian mafia boss. A serious fuzzing of morals. And a kick-ass villain.

    Essentially, a pretty damn good read.

    4/5

    Read a few chapters of this way back. Quite a few engaging OC's and a decent plot if memory serves.

    This is about to be concluded. The problems with this story are mainly some continuity quirks- often, but especially in the later parts, it's not exactly clear how we got from A to B - and a few parts that are just confusing and should have been edited. Nevertheless, during the entire arc, from the initial kidnapping, to the morally ambiguous and kickass conflict scenes, to what's shaping to be an epic ending, this story has kept an amazing pace and an almost unique tone. The writing has been top notch, and the number of reviews this guy has are criminally low.

    4.5/5
